Quotes

Belisama: I called the Gender Patrol. I saw him naked from the waist up in public. It's against the stratification laws, it was horribly offencive.
June Sterling: I don't care about your laws, I just want my son back.
Gina Sterling: Now wait a minute. All the girls at school read "Available Hunk" and that's full of guys without any shirts.

Stepford hunks
9 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Sterling Family arrives in a new province with some very interesting societal makeup. In a reverse of the Stepford Wives this province is a feminist paradise where women predominate where men sit at home and do the house work and provide breeding services.

Elaine Giftos is the local Gauleiter in the neighborhood that the Sterlings move into. She sees them as a subversive influence in her well ordered world.

The climax of the show has Tony O'Dell who keeps violating these laws they have about how men should behave and being put on an auction block. The society makes no provision for gay people. I would have bid on him.

The Sterlings nemesis Jonathan Banks also is subject to these rules and as a war hero in this dimension he's the last word in Alpha Male.

An interesting and even amusing story at times.
